    How about just ONE engine… we’ll call it a “helicopter”.

    I use these headers all the time. As mentioned, a larger pack for $1.50 would be more reasonable… at least several at that price. I honestly don’t buy them here. I only pay $0.19 each for these 40-pin headers (packs of 10 for $1.90). But SparkFun makes it sooo easy to buy everything at once… so it’s a trade-off! ;-)

    From the schematic, the V1 and V2 pins are VREF’s for the gyro chips. I don’t use these, and the data sheet indicates to use the VREF’s if using only the non-amplified outputs.
    As for what pins to use, use the 3.3V pin for power. Use the GND pin for ground. I also use the Gx4 gyro pins and the accelerometer pins next to those. I don’t use any pins on the other side of the board.

    Great board! I’m using it to develop my own UAV. I’ve posted Arduino code for fusing the data and displaying it on an attitude indicator program, which I also made(its available for download). All can be found HERE.

No public wish lists :(
